A consortium might consider applying for multiple blocks. In such circumstances, the consortium could decide to designate different operators for different blocks, based on a reflection on location, expertise and profitability. In this case, the JSBA subscriber will face the challenge of creating a JSBA that satisfactorily establishes that different operators will be designated for different blocks, with different rules for offers for different blocks, with different operating conditions until the relevant IAS are agreed and different accounting procedures are applied. It will not be an activity without complexity. Due to differences in industry practices, standards, laws and practices, the appointing authority`s drafting committees are drawn from a broad group of practitioners and negotiators who collaborate to develop a balanced and comprehensive model contract, with options and alternatives to reflect differences in international industry practices. On the right, a list of current standard contracts is listed. A list of available archived contracts can be found here. In addition, the parties should be aware that there may be mutual interest agreements („AMIA”) that could bind potential consortium members. The impact of these existing agreements on the composition of the envisaged consortium needs to be carefully considered.
The content of a JSBA is always a product of the time available before the licence application is submitted (which, in the case of ukcs, is usually 90 days from the start of the licence phase). The JSBA is usually designed for an early finish line – licensing. Instead, the parties should be as detailed as possible within the JSBA so that the joint venture between the consortium members can be operated until the JOA agreement. Standard contracts of an official aisle support the parties by allowing them to focus their efforts on important commercial and contractual terms rather than on provisions that are of a standard nature. Members of the opening ai always have free access to download all types of ncY contracts, as well as guides, translations and training modules for these contracts, if available. Archived contracts are also available free of charge online. Members also have the advantage of joining one of the drafting committees of the fniadissa. This practice note provides an introduction to interconnection agreements and their main provisions. This practice notice:•explains the purpose of an intercreditor agreement and when an interconnection agreement is used instead of a priority act or an act of subsecation•links to caution should be made when including withdrawal clauses in the JSBA.
Some model agreements, such as the model form AIPN Study and Bid Agreement (2006), provide for a party to withdraw from the agreement and oblige the resigning party not to take a stake in the concession covering all or part of the territory envisaged by the consortium for a period of one year after the withdrawal. In most cases, it would be preferable to extend this obligation in order to prohibit the outgoing party, for the reasons mentioned in point 4 above, from submitting an application at the corresponding authorisation phase. . . .
